enough, ask your dermatologist about enbrel. >>> all right. it's "pop news." and rachel smith is here. what have you got going? >> a lot of great stuff. let's get to it. okay? first up, everything could be coming up roses for barbra streisand's silver screen adaptation of the musical "gypsy." according to reports, the two-time oscar winner who is starring and directing the film, is thinking of casting lady gaga as the lead. for those not familiar with musicals, gaga would play the daughter of streisand's character, rose. can you imagine that mashup on screen? >> good work, yeah. >>> a lot of a-list celebrities have their own perfume, right? why not restaurants? >> oh, no. >> oh, yes. seems that pizza hut is getting in on the act, with a very limited edition fragrance. this actually started as a joke on facebook. they got such a great response they thought, we have to go for it. they went for it. >> yeah. >> a limited edition is the key phrase there. >> yeah. i know, right? ron actually said it doesn't smell too bad. >> keep that away from me. >> supposedly it smells like dough, right?

. caller: exactly. >> bill: i hadn't thought about that. yeah. rachel down in nashville, tennessee, hey rachel good morning. caller: bill we talked before about the 47%. can you please tell me why we don't just call their bluff? they are always talking about the job creators. all we have to do so, bi, is say, fine. you want all of this on your dividends, you crate a job, you get a tax break. >> bill: makes sense to me. it's the whole idea that people like, you know, donald trump and sheldon adelson and the koch brothers are the job creators right? it's total nonsense. all they do with that money, that extra tax cut they get is they squirrel it away buy another vacation house or another yacht or another corporate jet. it's not going into creating jobs or investing in america. >> why don't we call their bluff? >> bill: well, you know, we are trying to this morning, here, rachel. some others are, too. but here is with a i would say. i wish president obama would do what we are doing this morning and call out john boehner and just identify him as the villai
